This used to be one of my favorite spots-lively with a great staff. Looks like another victim of Covid shut downs. Low energy staff, no music, we sat at the very empty bar and the bartender seemed uninterested in us being there, was inattentive and didn’t have a great attitude. If you don’t like helping people, why are you in the service business? Not sure if I’ll be back

the food was interesting and very good. Our server was very attentive and polite. The host was OK. the music was too loud and "hard" but they did try to accommodate our request to turn it down. I'd go again.

Excellent as always. We always love the Brussels sprouts - Birroteca has always made the best. And the carbonara was very good as well. Top notch beer selection, and an awesome Italian Kit Kat dessert to boot. I miss the Bel Air location, but glad we can always visit the "OG" in Baltimore.

Great food. Loved the atmosphere. We had a great chat with the owner. Apparently, staffing is really difficult and they were short handed. However, the folks that were working were busting their tails. We had a great dinner!

We haven’t been out much in the last year, and we were very happy that one of our favorite restaurants, Birrotecca, reopened now that the dining restrictions have been lifted here in Baltimore. The outside patio is covered with an awning, and even during a short downpour we stayed dry. The staff was welcoming, efficient and knowledgeable, and the food did not disappoint! This will continue to be one of our favorite restaurants!

We have been to Birroteca a number of times, both pre- and post-Covid. Pre-COVID was definitely better, as the menu was more diverse and the service DEFINITELY more attentive and friendlier. Our two most recent visits were disappointing. The menu was trimmed, not the most important issue. Pasta was very good, but pizzas were bland and not up to standard. The service was Very Inattentive, less friendly. Indeed, the front end supervisor was curt and at times critical. We will revisit Birroteca, but not as a first choice.

Outstanding! We came during happy hour and took advantage of the drink specials. The pizza and Brussels sprouts were terrific and service was pleasant and efficient. There's a reason it's taken me a few times to secure a reservation. Definitely plan on returning!

We had not been to Birroteca in many years. We realized that we were missing such a great little restaurant. Our serverRecommended that the portions are large enough to share entrées and salads. It was true.
Cocktail was pretty mediocre but our server made great wine. recommendation. My only criticism was that it was a little cool in temperature.

I had a lovely dinner with my family outside on a Saturday evening. The food was fabulous (particularly the Formagio pizza), as were the drinks. The service was excellent—one of our party is a wheelchair user, and the host let us know the best way to access the patio from the parking lot. So five stars for accessibility! Our only issue was that it got chilly when the sun went down. A few heaters outside would have helped. We'll be back!
